'In-N-Out, Fast Food Stop........ [Waiting For A Ride At A Restaurant; Simple Pleasures; Unruly Kids In Public; A Bit Of Humor; SHORT]


Though my “love” says it’s a bad place to wait,
here I am with two milks. Only milk, no plate.

She doesn’t mean it’s a dangerous place; that she doesn’t mean.
The staff is courteous, the milk is good, and the place is surely clean.
So far, an unruly little boy is all I have to complain about.
If I had my way I’d give him a little swat, then I’d kick him OUT!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In-N-Out in san carlo california was where i chose to wait for a ride from an auto dealer shuttle vehicle to take me to the next town to retrieve my vehicle. there was a mix-up and i waited there a LONG time but enjoyed writing poetry, drinking milk, and watching people.

    I'd give the kid more than a swat, but that's just me. At least the staff seemed nice and if the milk was good, all the better. (Report) Reply

    Very nice. if i was you, for sure i couldn't do this action, i mean writing poem while doing other things, but it gives a nice feeling. ha ha ha, what has that little boy done that you wanted to offer him a swat? so cute Bri. you know how the manage the words correctly. i always look at your works as a pattern for my (weak) poetry.
